Rats dribble pee all the time, and transmit Weils disease.
I would ditch the lot.
Agree with fidget. Chuck them Ed.
That's also why we shouldn't drink out of bottles in a pub, often they've been left outside and vermin have been around them. Dunno what happened to the milk bottles we had a school..
Foxhouse my apples are wrapped and stay in garage, so stay cool / cold. I have mouse bait in there and they are raised up of floor. I do check them often.
If its cardboard I wouldn't, I would just put a layer of paper on top
If its plastic I would wrap The important thing is to keep them separate so if one goes rotten, it does not spread to the rest.
Wrapping apples is ok if you have only a few to store. Try wrapping 600 pounds of them.
The temperature for storage is a bit hard to quantify, our apple store is frost free. Too much warmth just mans that they ripen up and need to be used.
I find that if I bring apples out of the store where it is cold, into the kitchen where it is warm, they ripen up and go soft very quickly.
